A very interesting match takes place today at “Bergen” between Brann and Stabaek for the 13th round of Eliteserien.
With midfielder Sivert Heltne Nilsen and forward Daniel Braaten suspended, Brann seemed much less potent in their 0-0 draw against Odd before the international break. They still have the best attack in the league, but only showed their defensive capabilities last time around. Brann winger Gilli Rólantsson Sorensen played the entire 90 minutes in Faroe Islands’ 2-0 World Cup qualifier loss to Switzerland.
Stabaek also have an excellent attack, but showed their weaknesses on the other side of the pitch against Lillestrom. They lost 4-2 and deserved just that. After their incredible start to the season, they’ve now slipped down to sixth place. Ohi Omoijuanfo made his international debut for Norway in this week’s friendly against Sweden. The Stabaek striker is the Eliteserien top scorer this year.
